The anticipation for Natural Calm Gummies in Canada was huge! Word about the Gummies spread from the US — where they first launched — to our Canadian customers fast, and before we could get bottles on shelves we had a waitlist.
That’s because, frankly, they’re delicious. Even if you love the taste of Natural Calm magnesium powder, you may be surprised at just how good the Gummies are. They taste and chew something like Swedish Berries, but with just one gram of sugar each, Natural Calm Gummies are a treat you can feel good about.
Finally, this spring, our shipment came in — to great excitement!
Wondering if you should try the latest in magnesium? In this post, we’re covering everything you wanted to know about new Natural Calm Gummies.
What are the Benefits of Natural Calm Magnesium Gummies?
Magnesium is one of the hardest-working nutrients in the body, responsible for supporting health in every cell.
Who Needs Magnesium Gummies?
Every adult and child needs dietary magnesium each day. And most of us need more magnesium than we get through food.
Unless you eat plenty of legumes, nuts, seeds, leafy greens and unprocessed grains, you probably don’t get enough through diet.
Most people over-estimate how much of these foods we’re eating and don’t realize how little magnesium is in the typical diet.
For example, kids who need about 150 mg of magnesium would need to eat about a half a cup of raw almonds, a cup of cooked spinach, or 1-2 cups of cooked legumes a day! And that’s just to meet basic the basic requirements of life.
Because of the size and shape, Gummies are recommended for ages 4+. Younger children are at risk of choking, just as they would be for any small, roundish-shaped foods. That’s why we recommend Natural Calm magnesium powder or MagTherapy transdermal magnesium for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
Why Choose Magnesium Gummies?
There are two important questions to ask when you know you need to supplement:
- Which magnesium will work best?
- What magnesium supplement will I really take every day?
If you’re spending on a supplement, you want to know it really works.
Research shows that magnesium citrate is one of the most absorbable forms on the market. The study in question tested Natural Calm against other leading magnesium brands. Natural Calm and the magnesium citrate tablet performed best.
Natural Calm Gummies are magnesium citrate. While this is yet to be tested, the fact that Gummies are chewable may help with absorption.
A supplement can only help if you take it when you should. Magnesium should be taken daily. But it’s hard to get into the habit of doing what’s good for you if it’s not also enjoyable.
Many, many of Natural Calm’s loyal fans say they love the ritual of taking our magnesium every day. It’s like a sweet, fruit tea, without any caffeine or sugar. That one of the reasons people stick with Natural Calm for so long. After all, there aren’t many supplements that feel like a treat!
Gummies have the same advantage. It’s easy to pop your daily dose of magnesium in place of sugary treats.
The only problem? You may not want to stop at your daily dose!
What’s in Natural Calm Gummies?
Natural Calm Gummies are made from the natural ingredients you’ve come to expect from the brand. All natural flavours and colours (that pretty hue comes from black carrot).
The Gummies are sweetened with organic ingredients, with less than 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of carbohydrates per Gummy.
That gummy texture comes from plant-based ingredients — no animal products, so this is one of the rare gummy products vegans can enjoy.
What’s left out is sometimes just as important as what’s in a supplement. Gummies contain no dairy, egg, soy, wheat, preservatives or artificial flavours.
When Should I Take Magnesium Gummies?
There’s no wrong time for Natural Calm Gummies!
Magnesium plays a dual role in facilitating energy-production and supporting a restful sleep at night. It’s not a sedative but regulates normal energy and relaxation.
That means you can take Gummies during the day or at night.
In fact, if your recommended daily dose is two or more Gummies, you can split up your intake. Our bodies love a steady supply of magnesium — not too much at one time, but always enough to keep critical systems functioning!
What’s the Recommended Daily Dose of Magnesium Gummies?
Each gummy contains 83 mg of magnesium citrate. That means most adults can get their basic minimum intake from four Gummies a day.
On the bottle, we’ve included this handy dosing guideline:
Ages 4 – 9: one gummy daily
Ages 10+: one to four gummies daily
If you’re taking Natural Calm magnesium citrate powder as well, adjust your dose accordingly. For example, if you take one teaspoon of Natural Calm as a hot drink once a day, you’re getting about 200 mg of magnesium already from a supplement. Add one or two Gummies per day, and you’ll likely meet your magnesium needs.
Young children should usually get one or the other because a single gummy can bring a kid close to their daily intake. You could give a child one gummy in the morning and ¼ or ½ tsp of Natural Calm magnesium citrate at night.
How Long Will a Bottle of Gummies Last?
It depends, of course! If just one adult is using Gummies and taking four per day, a bottle will last about a month.
If you’re buying Gummies for the kids in your life, the bottle will last much longer. At a rate of one gummy per day, a bottle can last one child four months.
Can I Take Too Many Natural Calm Gummies?
There’s only so much magnesium your body can absorb at one time. After all, we’re supposed to be getting magnesium at each meal, spread out over the day.
If you over-indulge in Gummies, your body will excrete the excess and you may experience a laxative effect. Loose stools are a sign you’re taking too much magnesium at one time.
We know, it’s hard to stop at just one, or two, or four! Gummies are delicious.
But you should start by spacing your intake through the day. If you’re giving Gummies to kids, you’re just going to have to be that tough parent and limit them to the recommended dose.
Are Natural Calm Gummies a Replacement for the Drink?
Natural Calm magnesium citrate powder has been on the market for about 40 years. It’s backed by dozens of awards and thousands of 5-star reviews. It’s tested and proven!
But some people prefer the ease of a gummy. If you’ve always used Natural Calm powder but want to make the switch, try it out.
It’s not really an either-or question. You just have to manage your total daily intake of magnesium by alternating between Gummies and the magnesium citrate powder.
Some days you may be on-the-go and need the convenience of a gummy. You might have an extra-hard workout and need to top up your magnesium during the day. You might be under more stress, or eating fewer magnesium foods and feel the need for an extra magnesium boost here and there. Gummies are great for a quick hit of magnesium!
Gummies are also great for picky kids! Most adults think Natural Calm magnesium citrate powder is the perfect balance of tart and sweet, but kids don’t always agree. If you’ve tried adding a spot of natural sweetener to their Natural Calm drink, but they still don’t love it, Gummies might do the trick.
Where Can I Find Natural Calm Gummies?
Natural health retailers across Canada have been the first to get shipments of Gummies on shelves. Head over to your local supplement retailer and find Gummies on the Natural Calm shelf.
Mass retailers will soon stock Gummies, too, so you’ll be able to pick them up with your groceries.
And of course, you can order Natural Calm Gummies from our online store. Gummies qualify for free shipping!
